Santa Clara University Athletics announced Tuesday that Egnyte has joined the department as the newest Team Santa Clara Corporate Partner. Egnyte is now the Official Information Infrastructure Partner of Santa Clara Athletics.
Egnyte joins Coca-Cola, DEVCON Construction, Lunardi's Markets, One Workplace and Wells Fargo Bank at the highest level of corporate partnerships, Team Santa Clara.
This marks the first time a Silicon Valley technology company has partnered with the Broncos in what will be an integrated sponsorship across multiple sports, with the majority of the exposure elements centering around men's basketball. Egnyte will have a major presence with Bronco basketball including radio and select television broadcasts, prominent in-arena signage and logo recognition, as well as access to in-venue hospitality. The company also will be the presenting sponsor of the men's basketball game in the Leavey Center on Sat., Jan 12, 2013, when Santa Clara hosts BYU in the Leavey Center.
Additionally, Egnyte will receive numerous sponsor benefits throughout the agreement including visibility on the official athletics' website, SantaClaraBroncos.com; promotional engagement with fans; logo recognition on publications; signage in Buck Shaw and Stephen Schott Stadiums; and tickets.
In the coming months, Egnyte also will unveil its specific plans and promotions as it relates to serving as the presenting sponsor of Egnyte Tech Day at a future men's basketball home game.
"Egnyte is a huge fan of the Broncos and we are excited to not only be the first Silicon Valley technology company to partner with Santa Clara University Athletics but also their premier file sharing provider," said Vineet Jain, CEO of Egnyte and MBA alum of Santa Clara's Leavey School of Business '02.
